Auto Accident Care in West Omaha

Man with neck pain after auto accident.Research shows that a car collision at just two miles per hour can create substantial injury. Half of those in auto accidents at 10 miles per hour or less are injured. Of that half, 9% are permanently impaired. There are very few, if any, studies done over 10 miles per hour because the injuries are too great. Whiplash can have serious consequences if not addressed correctly.

With statistics as serious as those, it’s no wonder that doctors recommend you get checked out at Green Chiropractic if you have been in an auto crash.

The Pain and Dysfunction You’ll Experience

During a car accident, your neck is quickly moved in a forward, whip-like motion. You might experience problems such as

  • Shoulder tension and achiness
  • Back and neck pain
  • Upper back pain
  • Headaches, especially those starting at the base of the skull
  • Stiffness of the neck or back
  • TMJ
  • Pain and numbness in the extremities
  • Foggy brain
  • Poor concentration or memory
  • Dizziness
  • Irritability/ Mood changes/Depression
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Herniated discs
  • Rib injuries from seatbelts

Too often, people write off a collision as a harmless fender bender. Your problem will likely go unaddressed if you’re dismissing it as something you can ignore. Your body will then be forced to heal as best it can alone, leaving you with pain and other issues that can last for years. Commonly, people have premature arthritis, disc issues, numbness and tingling in the fingers and have to face a surgery in the end.
